On this tour the likelihood of getting to experience the strike of a fish and seeing it emerge from under the ice is very good.
This is a private ice fishing safari for at least four people. Just look at the calendar for a free day and make a booking!
If your group size is less than 4 people, you can participate in our public ice fishing safaris.
We will meet at the Nallikari lighthouse and begin a 5 – 15 minute walk on the frozen sea to the fishing spots, where a small heated tent awaits us. On location everyone gets a chance to drill a hole in ice by themselves, and our fishing guide demonstrates how to attach the bait and how to lure the fish with it. The trip doesn’t require previous fishing experience.
Before the start of the tour, our fishing guide searches for fish with the help of a sonar fish finder.
The Oulu sea area, located in the Gulf of Bothnia, is absolutely beautiful especially in winter offering spectacular views on both the city and the open sea. It is also a great ice fishing location and has some good spots for catching perch, roach or even whitefish.
